A report claims that Juventus are close to signing Manchester City midfielder Vlad Nicolae Marin.

Juventus are reportedly close to signing Manchester City midfielder Vlad Nicolae Marin.

The 18-year-old only moved to the Premier League club from Lazio last summer, but it is understood that he is keen on a return to his home nation.

A number of clubs had been credited with an interest in the teenager, but according to Football Italia, Juve are confident of securing his signature by the end of the week.

Although primarily a midfielder, Marin can also operate in defence.
